|My new big, blue ring. <3 <3 <3|
While getting dressed last week I noticed a gap in my jewelry collection. I needed a blue and silver statement ring. Well...I did! I looked through all of my craft supplies and couldn't find a single blue thing that would work. So, I made something. I keep a jar of glass marbles for various crafts. Perfect! This project is pretty easy. The hardest part is waiting for everything to dry. I can be so impatient sometimes!
- Pad ring base
- Flat backed glass marble
- Acrylic paints
- Mod Podge
I used three different paint colors for this ring; silver, teal, and robin's egg blue. Place dots of each color randomly over the flat side of the marble.
|Add dots of color to the flat side of the marble.|
Use a toothpick to swirl the colors together.
Let it dry. Watch a TV show. Seal the back with Mod Podge or your favorite sealer.
|Seal the back.|
Let that dry. Grab a snack.
|Glue the marble to the ring. Easy!|
Glue the ring to the flat side of the marble with E600 or your favorite very strong glue. Let it dry. Do your laundry.
|The back. Wonder what the front look like!|
Enjoy your fab and super cheap new ring. I know I do!
I paid a grand total of 75¢, give or take. I found the ring base for half off at a craft store. The rest I had on hand (forgive the bad pun).
